Hello YouTubers!

Today I'm showing you guys how to get Serana to follow you incase she's 'bugging out'. As Serana is one of the most complex companions in Skyrim, there's a big chance that she might 'bug out', and I've seen many people on the internet looking for a solution that works on both PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. While I've only tested this on the Xbox 360, it should work on PC and PS3 as well, as the coding, forcing her to spawn and follow you, is the same no matter what system you're playing Skyrim on.
This method should also be able to fix the dialogue if you can't dismiss her, though I haven't tried it myself.

Here are the steps:
1. Travel to Castle Volkihar.
2. Go left until you reach the door to Castle Volkihar Undercroft.
2.5 !!!NOTE!!! If the skeletons don't spawn outside, this most likely won't work! Wait 10 days and they should spawn and it should work (thanks to natetheguitarkid for letting me know).
3. Enter the door and wait. If she doesn't spawn immidiately, try waiting 24 hours at the door.
4. Serana spawns in, following you. You can now access all the dialogue with her.

I hope you find it useful - if you do be sure to drop a like. Also for more be sure to subscribe and if you have any questions drop 'em below in the comment section :).

  • alex Gonzalez

    I want her to stop being my follower but its glitched and I can't even talk to her


    Dude, this works on PS4. Thanks man, Serana is my favorite follower. Also is this a permanent fix, or will she get bugged again if you leave her?

  • JitterEye

    This is currently confirmed to work on the following platforms:- PC- Xbox 360- Playstation 3- Xbox One- Playstation 4- Nintendo Switch

  • ak_deadly g4m3r

    There is something else wrong now serana won't follow me because when I told her to wait right here now I can't get her to follow me I don't have the word. do u know how to fix that as well?

  • Tapsalot

    Thank you! I am on PS3 so all the other things that say "open your console" won't work and I was really hoping this wouldn't mess up my first play through.

  • Rebecca Leader

    This didn't work for me, is there anything else that might help meThank you x

  • Emma P

  • Jeffrey Quinn

  • Not You

    I need a key to the underkroft

  • Jon-Anders Haukøy

    Thank you sooo much! This helped me so much!

  • Ruth Queen

    Thanks dude this totally worked I almost can’t believe it xD. Mines kind of a funny story why I parted ways in the first place with Serana.So basically I was messing around in her dads castle and shut myself in a cage and serana stared right at me. So then she decided to open the cage door and walk in to and I got stuck because she was in the way of the cage door so I told her we had to part ways and ever since then she wouldn’t talk to me anymore like I couldn’t even speak to her or ask anything. I thought she was mad at me or something xD and it’s been a few days irl and I still couldn’t figure out why she wouldn’t follow me until I decided to search this video up so thanks a lot dude 👍

  • those2vgplayers

    The problem I have is I meet her in dimhollow crypt and ask her to follow me but she never moves I have made multiple saves on different characters but she won't do anything. Help plz

  • _LanezGamez _

    I have waited a long time she didnt appear

  • A Strange Box Snake

    Does this work on xbox 360?In a sad attempt at fixing this I originally got a new follower than dismissed them, resulting in nothing. I hope that does not change whether this works or not.Also I am vampire, so does her residing in the castle make a difference?

  • Ryan Stoneham

    it don't work is there another way

  • dIlUt3dFaItH tyndall

    Hey jitter in mine she will become my companion but she stays at fort dawngaurd but when I go there she won't follow me but she has the equipment that I gave her on and I have the option to trade with her but she just won't follow me
